I hope someone can help me out a little.

As part of my build process, I have been trying to find all of the files 
in a directory that are not  under version control.  I can't seem to get 
some of the files to show as not in the repository.  For the purposes of 
one command, I want to ignore all of the .cvsignore files, including the 
one set up in the repository's CVSROOT directory.

I  have deleted my .cvsignore file in the directory (sandbox)  and used
cvs update -I !

from my reading of  the cederquist, this seems like it should work. 
However cvs still displays my .dcu files (which are ignored in the 
repository's cvsignore file).

Is there a switch that I am missing, or a better way of doing this?

I have tried this on CVSNTclient 2.0.38 and 2.0.41a
server version 2.0.41
